Valentine’s day is just five short days away already, how did that happen? I think I have been saying that for just about every holiday so far. It has been a whirlwind of a year. The BF and I are going quite fancy this V-day, and I’m pretty excited! We are seeing Chris Thile –> ( http://tinyurl.com/kqgs4xe ) play at a symphony hall and then most likely going to find a swanky place to get some drinks. Luckily for us the concert is Tuesday the 18th, so we won’t be fighting with the a) Friday crowd or the b) crazed Valentine’s day crowd on the 14th. Here are some sweet little Valentine’s day outfits floating around my Pinterest boards that I think would work no matter what your plans.
If you’re making it a girls night out, I think a chunky sweater (I mean, it is still February) and heeled booties is the way to go.
If you’re meeting up with a new potential Valentine at a casual bar a moto jacket, sweet dress, & tights to keep your legs from freezing over is a nice option. Flat booties are great for exploring around town and showing off your fave spots together.
If you’re meeting a new potential Valentine at a bit more upscale location I love this minimal look. It’s sleek and sexy, but could still work for many different venues if you’re in for a surprise date.
This look particularly inspired me for the event I’m going to with my boyfriend. I want to be a tad more dressed up than a typical concert outfit because it is going to be at a symphony hall.. but the leather jacket & messy topknot don’t make it look too fussy.
Hope you all have a chocolate filled day accompanied by cheesy love notes and mysterious flower bouquets from secret admirers. 😉

I’ve got a work vs. play look here again.. I feel like this might become routine. Both tops I’m wearing in this post were recent Target finds. My love for Target is never-failing. I ended up getting about four tops and a pair of yoga pants (because.. yoga pants, duh) all from the clearance rack! The new merchandise on the floor consisted of bikinis, cover ups, and shorts – and it’s been about eight degrees over here so that was not too appealing. They had a massive clearance section though so I spent waaay too much time scanning through it all, naturally.
(Sneaky work outfit selfies!) This top is actually really nice quality & I would have bought it full price at $29, but I was definitely happy to find it at $12.50. It’s sleeveless and is a pretty blush color with black color blocking on the sides.
Also got my hair did finally! I feel so much better not hauling around so much dead weight anymore.

Sometimes (all the time) I wish I could wear whatever I felt like wearing to work. I’m not talking like ‘pajamas and ratty T-shirt’ wear anything, but just based on whatever my style mood was of the day. Style mood is a thing.. it is reflected upon the weather, current musical interests, etc. Both above outfits were worn the past week when it was particularly rainy and nasty out, and sometimes all you feel like wearing in that sort of weather is a cuddly sweater, perfectly fitted pants, and some wedge booties to protect your toes from puddles.
Work Outfit: Striped sweater and pants from New York & Company | Play Outfit: Sweater and wedge booties from Target, maroon pants from Forever 21
